Erin wanted to be a celebrity when her acting career flopped. And she chose the single most addictive social media. Would you know what it is? INSTAGRAM
She wanted to be an Insta-mum living in a perfect home with a perfect baby and of course, those absolutely perfect pictures. But when video and pictures showing the reality was put up, her world crashed. Trolling started.
My first book by this author, this could have been so much better. The only good point about this book it showed how obsessed we could get about those numbers, those followers, likes, and comments, forgetting it was a virtual world.
The rest of the book was slow with not much of a thrill. Erin was not intelligent (read dumb) with her decisions. The story was predictable and the ending took such a weird turn that it put me out.
I slept off post reading the book. Sigh…

KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE. BUT YOUR ENEMIES CLOSER…
Erin lives an idyllic life by the seaside with her baby boy and Australian fiancée. She’s upbeat and happy – a natural mum. At least that’s what her thousands of followers on Instagram think.
In the real world, Erin is struggling with anxiety and finding it difficult to connect with her screaming son. So when a famous agent offers to make her the biggest Instamum out there, she’s over the moon. And when Amanda, a family friend who’s visiting from Australia, says she’ll move in and babysit to help make it happen, it seems like the stars have finally aligned for Erin’s exciting new career.
But when a devastatingly revealing video is posted online by an anonymous troll, Erin’s brought crashing back to earth. As everything she’s worked for starts to slip away, Erin must find out how far she can trust those closest to her…

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

Can relate 😒
Thanks for your excellent, honest review Shalini. I tend to mostly avoid books set around social media, and I will definitely avoid this. ❤📚
Please do. Spoiler alret Suddenly the book went into grooming a teen… Blehhh
You have been hitting an odd patch lately with these
Nopes… I have started putting my 2 star reads on the blog. Earlier I used to keep it to goodreads… Now I feel I better be honest here too
I agree that it is just best to stay away from that kind of crazy social media. It’s always there to make people, especially women, feel “less than.” Would I want to read a book about it? Nope!
This went a bit on the icky side with grooming etc.
ugh, sorry bout that. and the plot is already an old trope
